Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – The Illinois Senate will return to Springfield on June 15 to vote on the highly-anticipated clean energy proposal. Lawmakers, advocates, and stakeholders hoped to pass a plan before May 31, but negotiations came to a halt.

Senate Democrats officially announced their plan Tuesday and notified the Republican Caucus. Democrats say the bill negotiated by the Pritzker administration could help Illinois lead the nation on renewable energy.

“This is a landmark clean energy plan that both protects thousands of jobs and moves Illinois responsibly toward the future,” said Senate President Don Harmon.

The Senate only expects to stay in Springfield one day. Lawmakers haven’t filed language for the new energy proposal at this time.

Meanwhile, the Illinois House is also expected to return to Springfield next week on Wednesday, June 16 to take care of some final-action legislation, including the energy proposal.
